Proposed new advisory committee structure
Proposed New Advisory Committee Structure

NASA Science Advisory Committee (SAC)

Solar System Subcommittee (SSS)

Universe Subcommittee (US)

Earth-Sun System Subcommittee (ESSS)

SMD and NSAC may wish to establish ad hoc task groups in cross-cutting areas; these will report to NASA via the NSAC


What s new fy05 budget
What’s New/FY05 Budget

  • Earmarks, Exploration Vision

  • Mission Science Team Reductions

  • Originally:

    • Terra, Aqua Science Data Analysis – 5%

    • Terra, Aqua Algorithm Refinement – 7.5%

    • MODIS Team Lead – 12.5%

  • Solution: savings from incremental funding (FY07 installment, ROSES impact)

  • FY06 requested vs. enacted budget


Mission extension senior review process
Mission Extension/Senior Review Process

  • Effort lead by Chuck Holmes at NASA HQ

  • Mimics former Space Science process for extending missions beyond the prime life

  • 2-year cycle

  • Proposal submitted by 16 March 2005

  • Up for review:

    • Terra (CERES, MOPITT, MISR, ASTER, MODIS)

  • Review by Panel of Peers – outside NASA

  • 25-26 April 2005

  • Mission Operations and Calibration and Validation


Modis team meeting in july 2004 the challenge
MODIS Team Meeting in July 2004: The Challenge

Reap the full scientific benefits of MODIS, Terra, Aqua, & EOS

  • Make/keep existing data products the best they can be

  • Develop new data products to enable important, new scientific and applied uses

  • Utilize MODIS (and Terra, EOS) data products to create new scientific understanding of planet Earth and how it is changing – and new applications of this knowledge for decision support


Outcome of the challenge
Outcome of the Challenge

The Continuity and Evolution of Earth System Science

  • How does MODIS fit into a changing world?

  • NASA Mission: understand and protect our home planet

  • NASA is in the process of transforming itself to implement the President’s Exploration Vision

  • Strategic Roadmapping Effort taking place

    • SRM-9 – Earth Science

  • Earth Science is changing from mission science teams to measurement-oriented science teams (CDRs)

    • Oceans up and running, land in development, atmosphere status

  • Modeling and Analysis Program (Don Anderson)

  • Development of and Linkage to Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS) – land, ocean, atm

  • U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy/National Academy of Sciences – R2O


Issues for modis team
Issues for MODIS Team

  • More interdisciplinary algorithm development approaches; share expertise

  • Certain algorithm developers and validation investigators should address important deficiencies in key data products (e.g., cloud mask, atmospheric correction)

  • Algorithm developers need to represent broader community needs by working with them

  • Algorithm refinement PIs need to provide compelling justification for the importance/utility of the algorithm improvements and/or new data products

  • MODIS Land, Ocean, & Atmosphere Groups work interactions across the team


New eos data review needed
New EOS Data Review Needed

We need:

  • A plan for review of ATBDs for the new and alternative EOS algorithms – after 2-3 years

    • Assess quality and importance of data product suites (and their components)

    • Prioritize EOS data products relative to each other and relative to other needs of the community they serve

    • Recommend changes, improvements, level of service by data systems and archives

    • Must involve community

    • Must take into account NASA (or other) resources / program components required to support the products; involve data system and archive management, NASA HQ Focus Area Leads (program/project managers)

    • Suggestions Welcome


Measurement teams
Measurement Teams

Continuing/evolving measurement streams, there will be one science team, competed periodically, that provides scientific guidance to present and future missions and for the utilization of past data sets

  • Support and focus on Climate Data Records

  • One data system to ensure a “seamless” time series

  • Scientific guidance and priorities must represent broad user community

  • CDR Session tomorrow – L. Tsaoussi (HQ) – Earth Science Data Records


From mission to measurement teams
From Mission to Measurement Teams

  • Ocean Team has already begun this change

  • “Land” (Vegetation?) is poised to begin

    • One or several measurements, what ones

    • Spatial resolutions: moderate (1 km) and high (30 m)

    • Surface hydrological and geological measurements?

  • Atmosphere Team status?


Modis team meeting march 2005
MODIS Team Meeting – March 2005

  • Update on “new” team (PI) progress, integration

    • Algorithm Refinement and Validation

    • Science Data Analysis Results

  • Issues encountered

    • Oceans – data processing, cal/val, annual reviews, meas. team (PI) progress, future planning

    • Land – measurement team spin-up (CDRs, ESDRs), instrument update, prod. distribution/archive, future planning

    • Atmosphere – calibration, cloud radiative properties, future planning, aerosols, DB, interdisc. science, atm. correction

    • MCST – Session Tuesday evening – land/ocean/atm, cal/val, striping, earthshine, cross-sensor calibration
